Has a short write up on A.J. in National Speed Sport News. Interesting stuff, he's got a lot of sponsorships visible on the car but mentions early how frugal the team is and I'm assuming needs to be. I wish someone in central pa would give this kid a shot. One of the most likable guys out there.

Great guy, great family. He makes time for all of his fans, doesn't have an arrogant bone in his body. I think the problem is one of simple geography. Being from W.Pa., working and making his life here, it's probably difficult for him to commit to a central Pa. based team that would likely want him at Williams Grove on Fridays. It's probably the same thing that has plagued many capable 410 drivers from the area. However, the upshot of owning your own team is that, for the most part, you can race when and where you want, as frequently or as infrequently as you want. And, there's the added satisfaction of running well and winning with the equipment you own and maintain. But, I agree. He has the talent to be competitive nearly anywhere.

Guess you don't read what he has to say on Facebook all the time when things don't go his way.

Facebook should be exterminated in my opinion. Along with all the rest of them.

He's no different than any other young driver that gets frustrated.

I guess you also don't read DD's posts when he's pissed either.  :rolleyes:

I don't get all the hatred for AJ. No one who knows him has an unkind word, and he's a skilled driver. 



My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.

All I know is he gets on social media and starts blaming other drivers for being in his way his his way. I guess he forgot he was one of those drivers at the beginning of his Sprint car career.

Almost every driver who has a Facebook or Twitter page does the same thing, why single  A. J. out?

Most everyone below the age of 40 uses social media. But, yes, you're right. Why single the guy out?

Because its social media and people like to bitch. A.J. busted his ass to get sponsorship money to get where he is today. I'm sure it gets frustrating, and yes he has a right to vent on social media just as people have a right to vent here. But if you don't know the guy or never walked up to him to have a conversation then your comments shouldn't be harsh.

Yeah well you don't see Si Lynch, Jr. doing that because he's an outlaw did you see his beard that thing is the pride of Apolla, PA maybe that's what A.J. #2 needs to do grow a beard and you would like him Si Lynch, Jr.'s beard has its own exhibit at the Apolla moon landing celebration Si Lynch, Jr. set fast time and his beard was two tenths behind him A.J. #2 tried to put a slide job on Si Lynch, Jr.'s beard but he couldn't clear it fans boo Si Lynch, Jr. but they cheer for his beard Si Lynch, Jr.'s beard signed autographs and drank beer with fans until Lernerville shut the lights off Si Lynch, Jr.'s beard is not afraid to put all four in the fluff I think Si Lynch, Jr. should start putting his feature win stickers on his beard.

Jr. ? Where did that come from. There's only 1 jr in that family. I'm glad I got to watch his old man and then watch ed Lynch jr tear up western pa tracks for years. Sye is coming into his own and hopefully he carries on a proud tradition in that family. Oh and by the way the flick family lives right down the road.

You've never heard of Si Lynch, Jr. you mentioned his dad is Ed Lynch, Jr. tomorrow you can call him Si Lynch, Jr. Lernerville Speedway track champion well no wonder you love A.J. #2 so much he lives down the road from you maybe you can tell him how much you love him when you bring in his mail or cut his grass while he's at Port Royal.

And you don't see AJ running over guys because they got into the corner ahead of him. But better to take someone out, than to vent frustration on social media I suppose. Now, I'm overstating Sye's incident with Tim Shaffer to point out that Sye isn't some sort of infallible god of the wheel, either. And after spinning Shaffer, and given the chance to just apologize for the racing incident, (and it probably was just that), he acted like a Lynch.

Was Si Lynch Spanish for Aj Flick. It looks to me Aj is the points champion.
